    It is a easy walk to the cruise terminal approx. 15 - 20 minutes via Gastown. Mostly flat with a slight hill near the end. Other option would include the train with Stadium/Chinatown station only a few minutes away... More

    Hi- my husband, Michael, is going to Vancouver for the weekend to visit our daughter and is booked Thurs-Sat nights! The Lodge sounds absolutely amazing. We are curious about the Sweat Lodge and Smudge Room. Are they open to the public? Sounds intriguing on so many levels. Thanks.

    Yes you can have a smudge room and sweat lodge experience - there is a cost to this . The best thing to do is to send a email to the hotel and find out what current rates are. If there are only 2 of you they maybe able to... More
